About Eileen Townsend

Eileen Townsend is the advocate you've hoped for in the competitive Bay Area market. Known as the calm within the eye of the storm of real estate, Eileen takes the mystery out of buying and the uncertainty out of selling. Whether markets are rising, with scarce inventory and multiple offers, or shifting, with unpredictable outcomes, Eileen's clients close on time, on goal, and with as little stress as possible. 

Eileen’s high-touch style embraces your unique real estate dream while her clear-headed business acumen guides the high-stakes decisions you face. She never forgets these involve both your finances and an asset as precious as the place you call home. You'll value the perspective Eileen has built working as a top producer through two decades of market changes -- both booming and declining -- previously under the Sotheby’s and Coldwell Banker brands, now with future-focused Compass.

Press & Media

Taking a “road less traveled,” I came to real estate as a career-change when I realized it was already my lifestyle. I was the corporate-relocated spouse, moving my family coast-to-coast and back again, through 7 states and 15 homes. It was on the 5th re-launch of my former career – as a journalist, then a marketing-PR executive – (also the purchase of the 12th home) that I realized I knew more about making the real estate deal than most of the agents I hired.
